    New Artist Alert!

    Supremely talented singer-songwriter Willy Mason is about to put out a new record next month on Communion Records in the U.S. He's also just released a video for the first single "I Got Gold" and will be touring throughout January and February in support of his new EP, Don't Stop Now, which is out on January 14.

    The EP offers a taste of what's to come from Mason's third studio album, also due for release later next year. The EP will be released digitally and as a limited run of 500 10'' vinyl via Communion Records.

    Dan Carey (M.I.A., Hot Chip, Bat for Lashes) produced the first three tracks of the EP, and the fourth and final title track "Don't Stop Now" is a collaboration that was written and produced with a friend from Willy's home state of Massachusetts. The EP fuses Mason's unique vocals with lyrics that draw on sentiments of hope, disillusionment, love and lost connections. It is anchored by new single "I Got Gold."

    Watch the video for the punchy track below:
